St. Patrick's Outreach for the Homeless of Omaha and Council Bluffs
MINISTRY 1: Breakfast Feed Downtown
Please Contact: Mitch or Kathy Wendlandt contact parish office
Once a month, we will have a breakfast from 7-11 am on Saturday. We are looking for 5-6 people who would buy, prepare and serve the breakfast to 75 or so people. Equally, we need help collecting adult bikes, jeans, shirts, boots/shoes, hygiene products and would be willing to distribute them during the breakfast. If you are looking for a way to make a difference this can be a very warm and moving experience.
MINISTRY 2: Assist People Living Outside
Please Contact: Bill or Celeste Baumert, contact parish office
We simply need items that assist with basic survival such as:
-Tents, Tarps, Sleeping Bags
-Snack packs: (easy on teeth)
MINISTRY 3: Help Move Someone off the Streets and into an Apartment
Please Contact: Dave Harvey, contact parish office
All the items are donated to us each week. We need people with vehicles to pick up furnishings, deliver and help setup. We move people every Saturday. Can you find a helper, a vehicle, and spare 4 hours on Saturday? This can extra special, as you have a chance to be compassionate, listen, and offer a prayer for them as you leave. This can be very fulfilling. If you have used items want to find a good home for them, please consider donating them to our friends on the street. We would be happy to pick the items up!
